Looking for a decent wet suit for my wife. She's rather chesty, and so far the only thing we've found that fits her properly is the Deep See 15/16. A 16 from Mares wasn't even close. Anyone have some info on where to point us? She's about 5'8"...

Custom wet suit is the way I went when purchasing a wet suit for my wife.

I have a 3/2 Bare Velocity. It has lots of stretch and accommodates my girls nicely.

Are we talking 3mm or more like 7mm? In my experience, the thicker suit was *much* harder to fit. I eventually found a 7mm Pinnacle suit that works for me (forget the model name, but it's one of the Merino lined ones). Probably, she'll just have to try a handful (guessing using size charts) and see what works.

The BARE Sportswear Elastek is what you want. It is a 100% 4 ways stretch so they will fit anyone, what is her rough wieght. I garentee that the elastek will fit her. This is an amazing suit and she wont even feel like she is wearing a suit. We have them if you would like one your you can email email@example.com and I can help you get the correct size.

I have the same problem. I purchased 4 different off the rack suits before I finally gave up and went with a custom suit. It is the best money I ever spent...diving is so much more enjoyable now that I am comfortable. My suit came from www.Aquaflite.com (http://www.Aquaflite.com) and I was very pleased with the quality and service.
